    Good Afternoon

    When I try to get Princes coupons I get a blank page to print on Google. Only started yesterday.
    Like using Google as get the option to store rather than print and then just edit and print just coupon bit. Have spent hours trying to alter settings, remove Google and start again, but same problem.
    Still working on other browsers.
    /QUOTE]

    I get this too but if you look at the print options it will say its a 3 page document. Just print page 2 only. Hope that helps.

    Spot on!! Just used the last of my 'Old Bubb's Beef' !! and I'm hoping to escape to Sada tomorrow, using up a couple of APGs before they expire and buying wine! We started stripping the sitting room today, after an hour Mr Grumpy told me just to leave him to it, but kept shouting for me to clean up and make tea etc... I'm sure he is much nicer to the old dears he works for who think he is a national treasure!

    The daft thing is before he gave up driving and became a 'Handyman' I used to do all of the decorating, but have decided just to let him get on with it, with the odd word of advice though............

    If anyone is wondering, the snow showers we had vanished and yes I did manage to get OH away from work at a reasonable time today

    We went and got our free bags of Thorntons chocs - we have a small store in an outlet type shopping centre - sadly no coffee ones so I got the orange crisp ones although I don't know why as the sticky bits annoy my teeth
    3 each - silly price.

    Then we went to the Marks outlet place in search of leggings and I found the type with the very wide waist band - the sort we all got with various Sparks offers last year but sadly they don't seem to be stocked anymore in stores.

    These were buy one get one half price so 2 pairs for 13.50 - pleased with this as I live in leggings now with 180 denier thick tights underneath, always a frozen huddled heap, that's me
    (3 layers on the bottom half plus socks under the boots and 6 layers on the top half - bra,vest, long sleeved tshirt, thin jumper, winter pinafore/knitted dress plus either cardigan/jacket/fleece

    When we went to the till I asked and the girl said I could use my Marks credit voucher and she could also scan my sparks card for points

    Also by chance looking on the mens clearance section I found a really nice looking black lined double breasted pea jacket with a funnel collar in OHs size - he has never even tried this sort of jacket before so I passed it to him to try on and it fitted and looked fabulous It had a security tag on it so the till girl said it might have originally come from a London store - they don't even have a gizmo for removing them so she had to go to the shop next door to get it removed
    19

    OH is thrilled to bits with it - OK its a bit like the jackets Danny Dyer wears (I know he gets on everyone's wick but I have a bit of a crush ...

    Marks mens jackets start at 99 and got up to 179 this season ...

    Just looking at the free drink this month for Piture and Piano owned by Marstons) and oddly the Chester one wasnt on the location list so I went to their FB page and they are closing on March 17th

    So many nice lunchtime drinks we have had over the years

    now we have to go all the way to Birmingham ...

    Is there any AP experts about?

    OH has gone to his app and all the vouchers seem to have vanished - how do we find them again?

    The app was only used at the end of February and the list of vouchers was there

    keep it simple tm
    lentil shepherds pie with sweet potato mash is a decent main that we have found most meat eaters will eat as well,it was our most popular dish at cafe. and serve roast veg etc. or did you want something posher,for breakfast cereal is a good stand by with soya or rice milk but if you want to do a fry up for everyone get linda maccartney sausages, fried mushrooms, tomatoes hash browns , beans you can also do scrambled torfu,add some veggies etc, but I dont rate it personally.

    if you want lentil shepherds pie recipe or something else let me know xxxxx

    I believe they are of similar size to current credit meters if I were you and you were thinking of smart meters I would wait for the roll out of smets 2 which is the 2nd generation of smart meters only reason behind it, if you switch with the current smart meters they lose there smart functionality and you have to read them manually 2nd generation smart meters allow you to switch and keep the smart functionality. The in home display can be put anywhere in the house but some are advised to keep near to where your meters are
    To be honest I know that some of the online tariffs are better than prices being offered with smarts, iv not had them installed yet and not rushing lol

    I have had multiple calls of people saying the boiler wouldnt come back on after engineers have exchanged the meters and for most weve had to get engineers out and fix it, I think they are good for those who want to watch their energy usage to try and cut back but my personal opinion is if you already watch and cut back where you can then smart meter (other than tariff) isnt going to help that much. Also if your meters are quite far away from each other your gas might not be smart because it piggy backs off the electric meter to send data over
